Took my bike and camera and went for a ride the other day. The afternoon was blustery, overcast and kind of perfect. The city looked beautiful. Ended up on the Arlington Bridge, a classic design with a beautiful view of the downtown. Snapped some pics and video and really love the results.
During the holiday season I painted a gift for my husband, a piece based around his experience during a sweat lodge where an elder gave him his name and his colours.
Yellow, red and black.

I’ve been working with a local gallery, the Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art, documenting and recording their current show. The end result, a short document that will be used for online platforms and in a University setting to explore the themes and complexity of the installation.
We are in the final lap, video has been recorded and now we have to finish our audio on December 4th.
